We’ve seen both cat-eye specs and sunnies make a huge comeback. Although the shape has maintained its retro feel, it’s also been given a contemporary edge that makes it the go-to for every fashionista.

In general, retro wingtips are the most iconic style of sunglasses at the moment. Don’t forget to pick a pair up, they’re an absolute style staple season after season.

Round glasses and sunnies have both made a huge comeback in recent years, making a quirky yet fashion-forward addition to any woman or man’s style repertoire. Round glasses can also soften your look if you have a square-shaped face with angular jaw bones, although we tend to believe they suit anyone.

When it comes to glasses for the guys, there are countless legendary icons to draw inspiration from.
